Founded in 1887, the Penn Museum has always been one of the world’s great archaeology and anthropology research museums, and the largest university museum in the United States. With roughly one million objects, the Penn Museum encapsulates and illustrates the human story: who we are and where we came from.
Connecting the University’s mission of civic outreach to the needs of neighboring communities, Penn’s Netter Center for Community Partnerships supports programming and course work that gives Penn students opportunities to integrate learning and service.
Our campus was created with the student in mind—our four undergraduate and twelve graduate schools, three teaching hospitals, and 100+ research centers are all within a 10-minute walk of each other, so you have easy access to the entire University and unlimited opportunities to explore.
The College of Arts & Sciences is the heart of all the Penn programs. Spanning more than 50 majors and 2,000+ courses, the College offers a unique take on the classic liberal arts education.
